The Best Burger Pattie

ALL the flavor is in the Best Burger Pattie ~ and it is not only because of of the oh,so gooey cheese oozing out with each bite !

If I tell you this is the best Best Burger Pattie ever ? Would you believe me ? Until you try the recipe yourself, you will have to take my word for it.

I can not even begin to guess at how many burgers I have had over the years, and I am sure if you are a burger lover, you do not know either. Anyhow, with all the different burgers, different types of patties have have come and gone.  Somehow, I always choose a burger, whether homemade or from a restaurant, based on the ingredients - the way the burger is build. Never because of the pattie.

Now, have a look at the above photo, even if I say so myself, the gooey cheese looks amazing, but the rest of the burger ... not much going on , right?

It is because nothing much is needed to add flavor to the burger - all the juicy deliciousness is in the burger pattie.

To stay true to tradition, I did put out all the extras on the side and everyone build their own burger. I had extra slices of Gouda, Lettuce, Arugula, Tomato, Onion and a burger Sauce or two for each one to add or omit as they wished.

The above two photos were not even meant to be in the post, but once I bit into the burger, I could not resist, as you see so much more ... and some you do not see !

The Best Burger Pattie

8 Patties

INGREDIENTS:

1 kg Lean Ground Beef
1/2 cup Sundried Tomatoes in Oil, drained and chopped finely
1/3 cup Basil Pesto
1 Egg
Black Pepper, to taste
Salt, to taste  {a little, as the Tomatoes already adds some salt}
2 cups Mozzarella Cheese, grated

DIRECTIONS:

1.) In a large bowl, mix together the Ground Beef, Tomatoes, Pesto, Egg and season to taste with Black Pepper and Salt - form 8 equal sized balls.
2.) Flatten each Meat Ball to about twice the size of a normal Pattie - not too thin, though - place a quarter cup of Mozzarella Cheese in the center - fold over the sides of the Meat to enclose the Cheese - press a bit and make sure it is properly sealed all over.
3.) Place the Patties in a single layer, on a wax paper lined baking sheet {or something similar} - chill for 25 - 30 minutes to firm up.
4.) The Patties are now ready to be grilled, fried or whichever cooking method you prefer.

Serve on your Burger bar, with various different toppings - see below for some suggestions.

Burger Buns, toasted
Arugula Leaves
Lettuce
Tomato, slices
Onion, slices
Burger Sauces
Extra Cheese  {Gouda or similar}
